Hi guys

As u know we are planning to go to Disney Land :yahoo:well the list of conditions the lady in travel agent showed me didnt have Autism listed, she said if it wasnt listed i need to ring up and sort it and it may cost more to have him covered as he is on medication also.

If anyone can give me any advice on this it would be much appreciated thanks!!! Smile

DONT GO WITH THE TRAVEL AGENTS INSURANCE, they tend to be more expensive and offer less cover. Look at the post office my sister used them when we went to America Kids go free, and as a single mother this was great for her. you will probably have to pay more for T, and yes ring up even though it dosent list autism if you don't this will make your insurance invalid. I choose not to cover my bipolar as it was an extra 133.
You can also try the National Autistic website they might have insurers listed on there, I know my website does for bi polar.
P.S my advice does not come for free it will cost you a trip to Disney Land Laughing

at Disneyworld so he doesn't have to wait in line. With this pass, he and his accompanying parent can go to the front of any line. We took our son when he was six (he is now eighteen) and he really enjoyed it a lot. (I just registered yesterday)

PostSubject: To get the pass, you need to go to The Welcome Center   1/5/2007, 12:19 pm

or maybe it's called The Visitors Center. The hotel that you are staying at can give you the details. Or when you purchase your tickets, ask them about it. We took our trip in 1994, but I am sure they still have this service. Oh, forgot something important-----bring letter signed by his doctor that it is difficult for him to wait in line because of his condition. You shouldn't have any problems getting the pass with a doctor's note.

Hi Bambi, if you take proof of diagnosis and take it to guest services in the park they issue a pass to use the exits on the rides, normally for the whole party so long as its no more than 4 I love you
